Dear members, agents, and stakeholders of KSKJ Life,
I’m excited to communicate with you the results of the Board of Directors leadership appointments that were made this past weekend. These appointments will begin January 1, 2023.
This is a new process for KSKJ Life as a result of the referendum that was passed in 2020 to update our governance to a direct election model. As a result of that change, we held our first board of director election this past spring, with all adult members having the opportunity to cast a ballot to elect our national board, with all directors being elected “at-large.” The board has the responsibility to appoint their own leadership and positions, which they successfully coordinated for the first time.
As a reminder, with the referendum we also established staggered terms, meaning we will hold an election every two years for half of the board positions. Given that, the board agreed that the leadership responsibilities listed below would be for a two-year cycle.
Please join me in congratulating our new national board leadership on their appointments and thanking them for their leadership and service to KSKJ Life!
